SCOPE OF INDEX:  The index covers feature articles, editorials, many types of reviews, and news coverage of Ohio with emphasis on the Cleveland metropolitan area. The home edition of the Cleveland Press and the final edition of the Plain Dealer are the editions indexed, since these are the editions which are microfilmed. Omitted from the index are non-news items such as letters to the editor, Action Line columns, announcements of future events, astrological events, errata, fashion columns, gardening, hobbies or do-it-yourself projects, household hints, interior decoration, legal notices, paid obituary notices, recipes, and society personals.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  A book form index printed on 8½x11 inch pages. A computer is used to store and manipulate the entries, and a phototypesetter is used to produce the monthly index. The index consists of two sections, SUBJECTS and PERSONAL NAMES. Within each section, the entries are arranged in alphabetical order by subject heading or personal name, and then in chronological order. Entries consist of a brief annotation followed by the citation. The citation consists of the month, day, paper, section and page where the article appeared.
SIZE OF INDEX:  A current monthly index contains about 4000 entries (50 pages).
